These shoes joined my closet a year ago, and have gotten a ton of wear. The little bows sewn right in the fabric add a sweet detail which I think helps to make the bright color a little less harsh.
One of my favorite things about the board game character was his monocle. My sisters And I used to use the plastic rim around soda bottles, squish our eyes around the pointy circles and call ourselves intellectuals. Since my co-workers would think it a bit odd when I arrived to work with plastic circles in my eyes, I thought that my circle brooch may be a good replacement. The brooch is a series of shiny small circles that are piled on each other giving it a bit of design. Years ago when I was working retail, the company I worked for started putting pins, brooches and clips, on all of their sweaters. That of course meant that we would spend half of our shifts collecting them from the floor and looking for their rightful sweater. More often then not we could never find an empty sweater and the brooches would be left in our junk drawer. A number of months later, we split them up and each took a few home. I have never found much use for my small collection, except for using them as hair pieces, but as they seem to be making their way back into style, I want to try to find more uses for them.
